…like PMS, Anxiety, Bloat, Brain Fog, Emotional Mood Swings, Acne, Disrupted Sleep, Weight Gain and other female
issues caused by Hormonal Imbalances…All Without Pills, Drugs, Extreme Dieting or Feeling Deprived.
Hi, my name is Ashley and I once suffered from the sort of hormonal related concerns you might be going through right now. And I experienced the worst of it all…the distressing symptoms, the emotional rollercoasters, the sinking feeling you’ve lost total control of your body and your life.
If you said yes, then this probably will too…
When I was in my early 20s (like most girls) I started birth control because I was simply taught that was what you do at that age for “dealing” with female problems. But…I didn’t like the way it made me feel PLUS I just didn’t like the idea of putting something synthetic in my body which had such control over me. (I’m gonna guess you’ve felt this way too!) So I did what was the obvious thing for me…I got off birth control.
And sure enough…about 6 months later (once my body returned to its regular cycle), I suffered a slew of hormonal issues such as recurring UTIs, yeast infections, severe anxiety (like clockwork about 10 days before my cycle), intense mood swings, severe cramping, bloating, disrupted sleep, brain fog, and worst of all…a complete feeling of helplessness. So it was back to the doctor.
If you said I’d be told ‘it’s a hormonal problem’ and the only solution was birth control (although going on a cream or hormone replacement therapy were also offered as possibilities), you’d be right!
Now I wasn’t about to go backwards by taking drugs (whether it be birth control or any other unnatural “solution”), so I decided to continue just “dealing” with my issues. This went on for years. And yes, I was miserable (not a great time when you feel like you have to endlessly schedule your life around your cycle).
Because if you’ve read this far, I’ll bet it does.
Because it was at this point I had a conversation which would completely change my life. You see, I’d hit a tipping point which involved getting slammed with the worst UTI of my life. This, of course, made no sense to me because I was doing everything the same as I’d always had – absolutely nothing was different.
And yet…this time I did NOT go to the doctor because I didn’t want to get put on an antibiotic.
Because while the antibiotic might take care of the UTI it then creates a yeast infection which leads to the next antibiotic which then creates the next problem, and so on and so on…So I was stuck about what to do next.
I contacted a friend involved with Naturopathy and told her what was going on with me. And through her insight, I discovered I had something called Intercystitis, which is basically a urinary tract condition which makes your bladder feel like it’s on fire every time you eat or drink anything. This led me back to the doctor, where after running urine tests and pelvic exams he told me…there was nothing wrong! Even more infuriating my doctor said it was mostly in my head.
If the conventional medical industry couldn’t help me, I’d figure things out myself. So I began to do my own research. And by using my own body as an experiment along with talking to my Naturopath friend to make sure I didn’t do anything stupid, I started to learn the truth. The truth about what was happening to me. How to effectively and naturally treat it. And how to heal myself to feel better than ever.
Which – after 10 YEARS of studying, learning and research – is what I’d now love to share, and hopefully heal you with too. And that’s why I’m so excited to be introducing my new women’s only coaching program!
With Phoenix Rising, I’ve taken everything I’ve learned about alleviating hormonal conditions and created a HOLISTIC LIFESTYLE-BASED SYSTEM – one specifically designed to help women naturally overcome their problems.
And over the course of 90 DAYS, this cleansing process will rebalance your hormones to help you look and feel like YOU again. In fact, you’ll discover that you are NOT at the mercy of your hormones, but rather… you have far more control over your mind and body than you ever realized!
And you’ll do so NATURALLY, without pills, dieting or ever feeling deprived.Join Now
Specifically how to train your mind so you can better understand why you get hit by 'uncontrollable' cravings' (and how to subdue those cravings), how you can stay relaxed and focused during your lifestyle transformation, and how to use mindset to naturally help keep cortisol levels low and alleviate the anxiety the symptoms of hormonal imbalance can create.
Each body is unique, and here you'll develop internal balance by learning exactly what your body needs with regards to daily food intake, workouts, rest and recovery.
Detox your body and life to strengthen your internal systems and help ward off the biological factors which contribute to hormonal imbalance so you can return to your true self!
IF you are willing to put your mind, body and soul into our coaching relationship (this means total commitment and following me and my team’s guidance to a “T”)….you WILL develop a HEALTHIER, STRONGER, BALANCED mind and body to help balance your hormones, alleviate symptoms, and best of all… ‘reset‘ yourself to look and feel better than you have in years.
And once again, all without prescription pills/drugs, fad dieting, or eating boring diet food. In fact, during the course of the program, you’ll discover delicious, healthy recipes to enjoy forever.
You’ll do it all with a Salt-Of-The-Earth Gal who’s just a nerd about helping people tap into their Mind, Body and Soul to maximize their Own Potential.
This is a 3-PHASE SYSTEM – one designed to take your body through three different phases of cleansing/detoxing to help you restore your body’s natural hormonal balance.
The first 30 days will be an introduction in your body's system as a whole. Here you'll gain an education on how your food, your workouts, your mindset, and supplementation all work together like a well-oiled machine.
This will connect you to "Why" you are doing this program. And the "Why" is the key to sticking to any lifestyle change.
During this phase we will detox your body by cutting out processed foods, sugar and other things which keep our metabolism and our hormones from working at its best. This is also where you'll incorporate your new metabolic workouts into your weekly routine to help continuously sweat out toxins and build lean muscle.
FINALLY, this phase will be an intro to your mindset training. Because it's one thing to know how to workout and eat, but if you don't do anything about reprogramming and training your mindset to understand WHY you do what you do (like why every time you're stressed you go straight for the sugar and carbs), then you'll NEVER enjoy a long-lasting change... and that’s what this is all about. Simply put...this mindset intro is the catalyst to transforming your life.
During this second month, we dive a little deeper. Yep, now that your body has built up some resistance to the new workout regimen, it's time to step up the intensity of your workouts. This means that while we'll continue to clean up your nutrition and further incorporate a holistic approach to your food (we're talking about introducing more delicious natural foods to fuel your body and your brain while even cleaning up your home environment of products and things you use every day you probably didn’t even know were affecting your health),...we'll also go even deeper.
How so? Well, by incorporating more daily mindset training into your program, we'll further uncover your mental blocks and obstacles which have held you back in the past. These "hidden" blocks and obstacles are the very things which have kept you from becoming the strongest and healthiest version of yourself.
So to sum it up...the goal of phase 2 is a deep physical, mental, and nutritional cleanse. One which provides you the life-changing foundation to thrive in.
Now up until this point, you've been doing a lot of cleaning out and detoxing. But here's the part where all these awesome new fitness, nutrition and mindset tools you've been learning and incorporating over the last 60 days will be solidified into your new lifestyle!
In other words…What we do here will help integrate a complete healthy lifestyle which helps your hormones stay balanced while forever empowering you with a stronger, fitter, happier life. Because at this point...Your nutrition is now working WITH your body instead of against it. Your metabolism and hormones are now all functioning smoother and better (this means more energy, better sleep, better gut health, and greater peace-of-mind and mental clarity). And perhaps most importantly, your mindset is now truly focused and motivated because you not only have a deep connection to why this new lifestyle is so critical to living your best life, but you also have a deeper understanding of yourself.
In this final phase, we'll show you:
Here are some of our frequently asked questions to help
you with any concerns you may have.
No. There are supplement recommendations in the program with explanations of what they do if you choose to use them at your own discretion, but no you do not have to buy supplements with this program.
Yes! The idea behind this program is to Start where YOU are, listening to your body, and discovering what you specifically need. The workouts slowly progress and only require a pair of dumbbells that you choose which weight you would like to start with whether you are brand new or have been working out the workouts are made so they can be customized to everyone. There is also a section in Phase 1, specific to “Beginners” that focuses on just getting your body used to regular exercise with body weight movements. Lastly, the program includes an entire modification list and substitution list for each exercise so you can adjust the workout to your fitness level.
This program is suitable for women of all ages. I have helped women in their 20’s and 30’s balance out their hormones and their body after birth control or just after years of severe PMS symptoms like estrogen dominance and mood swings. I also have helped women in their 40’s-60’s who are struggling to lose that peri-menopause and post-menopause weight or as they have called it “the tire around their tummy and the extra bra fat”, along with getting their hot flashes and night sweats in check. The program will teach you how to discover what you need with a holistic combination of mindset, holistic nutrition with foods specific to hormone balance, functional fitness to improve your physique, and natural herbs and vitamins that will go along with this.
A Holistic Coaching Approach expands beyond just exercise and nutrition to address all aspects of life and health including, but not limited to, the physical, chemical, mental and emotional, spiritual, and environmental aspects of one’s life. Anything else would be just one piece of a much larger puzzle when it comes to your health and finding true balance.
Those conducting holistic nutrition approaches with clients explore a complete analysis of diet, emotion, exposure to environmental toxins, work, and lifestyle habits to help educate women on a number of health issues like anxiety, depression, insomnia, weight issues, weakened immune systems, chronic pain, allergies, hormones and so much more. Where Dieticians do not necessarily emphasize the link between diet and disease as someone with a Holistic approach would...they usually treat symptoms and already existing issues to help you lose weight.
Traditional Medical doctors treat symptoms and prescribe medications to essentially help you “manage” your issues and how to just live with this as a new normal in your life, but don’t actually dig deep to discover why you are having these issues to start with.
No. I am not a doctor and cannot treat or diagnose you, but I can provide you with education and recommendations to help you naturally. No, I do not take insurance simply because natural and functional approaches to health are not recognized by most states as “real” healthcare (which is crazy). However, I have spent years helping women with their bodies with a holistic approach of holistic nutrition, integrated hormonal balance, and functional fitness. I also have gone through this specific program for myself to balance out my own hormonal issues naturally. I have worked with friends who are Naturopaths, taken multiple Certified Courses on Integrative Female Health, am Certified as a Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and have spent years of self-education learning what helps women live a natural, health and balanced life.
Some women who have gone through this program have had almost a complete turn around with their health in the 3 months while others have deeper underlying issues that need more time and attention which may require a more personal approach after you complete the 3 month program. I cannot guarantee any specific results, but I can tell you that a lot of women have seen a lot of success going through this program that has set them on the path to healing their bodies, losing weight, gaining control of their hormones, and better quality of life.
No. The workouts are structured so that all you need is a pair of dumbbells, a bench or step, and a jump rope. Even if you don’t have a jump rope though there are substitutions for other exercises you can do instead. The workouts use dumbbells to help balance out any muscular imbalances you may have in your body. Dumbbells work deep stabilizer muscles that you wouldn’t normally work using gym machines.
The nutrition is based on whole foods and all that means is food that is in its most natural form. You will have common foods that you probably already consume on a regular basis in there such as eggs, bacon, fresh fruit and vegetables, cheese, salmon, chicken, greek yogurt, nuts, and olive oil. Each meal has over 4 options for you to choose from for that meal that are structured around foods that help your body’s natural hormonal balance.
However, if you don’t like any of the options on there, you also will have a substitution list in the program so you can easily swap out one item you don’t like for another item you do like while still getting the same benefits.
The main purpose of this program is to help balance and heal your body naturally so that you do not have to do things to replace your hormones, but instead you become educated on your own body so you can do things to help them function at their best so you don’t have to use hormone replacement therapy. If you are currently on any kind of hormone replacement therapy, you will not be able to get an accurate assessment or understanding of what is in balance or out of balance to know what to heal. I also cannot tell you to stop any kind of medication as this is your sole decision. If you choose to stop your hormone therapy, please consult with your doctor first.
If you finish this entire program and you feel you still aren’t quite balanced and would like additional help with healing your body naturally, you will qualify to apply to work with me directly 1-1 where we will can setup a personlised holistic coaching journey that will include a much more in depth look at what is going on with your body such as hormonal panels, food sensitivity test, and other custom panels that will help in creating a custom plan for you.
I started out as a personal trainer back in 2009 wanting to help women with their bodies mostly to lose weight and boost their confidence. As I started that journey (and my own journey), I found myself wanting to find a way to enjoy things like pancakes, waffles and baked goods while sticking to food that was all natural, low sugar, grain/gluten free, and high protein so I created the ABS Protein Pancake & Baking Mix.
After a few years with ABS, I felt pulled to help women on a deeper level educating them on their food, nutrition, their workouts and how all of it was important for creating balance externally while boosting their confidence internally. In my own struggle with hormonal imbalance, I started educating myself with courses, books, and working with my Naturopath friend using my own body as an experiment to resolve my own issues. I learned everything I could about foods that cause hormonal imbalances, environment factors, emotional and mental factors, how fitness is an important key, and what herbal supplements can help aid the body in its natural process. After time, I was able to heal my own body and regain control and have shared this knowledge and experience to help other women who have also been able to do the same.
Or more accurately…YOUR INVESTMENT in reducing aggravating hormonal imbalances so you can live a serene, healthier and happier life. Here’s how it works…When you enroll in Phoenix Rising, you’ll gain immediate access to everything in our entire 90-day month coaching program for
Yes, a thousand bucks isn’t nickels and dimes, but I’ll tell you right now…it’s utterly insignificant compared to the physical and mental wealth you’ll gain by finally freeing yourself from the ‘prison’ of hormonal imbalance symptoms. And it can all begin now.
